Case closed: Get Ray Allen open

9
Practices usually don’t run this long or hard so late in the season, but everyone - Ray Allen especially - needed something yesterday to create a spark. The Celtics [team stats] guard, who was just 1-for-12 from the field in Saturday’s Game 1 first-round playoff loss to Chicago, sliced out to the top of the circle and buried a jumper. The ball rattled through - not with Allen’s customary swish but certainly better than all but one shot he took in the opener. Coach Doc Rivers called everyone in and ended practice at that moment. Muscle memory will be important in Game 2 tonight at the Garden. So too will effective pick setting - one of the many skills the team lacked in Game 1.
